This Bible was purchased on eBay in July, 2000.
Its provenance is described by the seller:
"...I rescued this Bible from a barn in Central Pennsylvania, on the edge of Dutch Country. The Bible had apparently long (scores of years?) been in that barn, in a trunk, that trunk apparently opened, judging from the dust on that Bible.
The barn was owned by a couple of Dutch bachelor brothers who had accumulated an amazing collection of family heirlooms and antiques of every description in their small home. In fact, I'm told that the last of the brothers had to sleep on the floor, because the bed and everything else in the house was covered in antiques.
It took seven days for the contents to be auctioned, the longest auction I've ever attended (the next closest was a whole antique village, and that only took three days). Before the auctioneers could enter the house, they had to remove items into temporary storage to get enough room to turn around."
It was published in 1838 by R.P. Desilver of Philadelphia.
It is currently in the possession of Tracy St. Claire, 114 Hilltop Lane, Sleepy Hollow, IL (July, 2000). It happens to be MY family Bible, unlike every other Bible on the Bible Records Online site. It was this Bible that started my interest. I stumbled upon it quite by accident; it was the first Bible I purchased.
It is my understanding that Dennis Woolverton is descended from THE Charles as follows:
Son Roger Woolverton
Son Charles Woolverton
Son Dennis Woolverton
